Summer In Review ~ My Favorite Ensembles
Now that the air is starting to change and thoughts of sweaters and boots are forefront in my mind I thought it was high time to revisit the summer and my favorite outfits.
I was pretty good about sticking to my plan of no shopping all of July and August.
I bought some things with the extra discount at work, and cracked when I found a pair of suede Coach heels a few weeks ago (for under $40!).
But other than that, I have been really well behaved!
All in all, I wore quite a few things that have been hanging there unused and formerly unnoticed.
It reminded me why I bought these items in the first place.
And that in the hustle and bustle of life, sometimes it is good to just stop and appreciate what we have instead of waiting and focusing on what's next.
I mean that in more ways than one.
A few weeks ago I was wishing and praying that summer would never end.
Now the thought of putting on my bathing suit and lugging the cooler and beach bag and chair down to the beach no longer appeals to me.
I am all "burger-ed" out and am longing to eat stew, chili, risotto's and meats braised for hours filling my home with the delightful smell of fall's arrival.
This summer has been fabulous.
I spent more time at the beach this year than I have in the past few years actually living on the beach for a full week!
We visited so many places around NJ and spent time with old friends and new friends and relatives we don't see often.
Fancy vacations are always nice, but sometimes just staying home is just as good.
